How to Make Sweet Hot Habanero Potato Salad


  • 1Place the potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 12 to 16 minutes or until tender. Drain; add cold water and allow potatoes to cool. Once potatoes are cool, drain, peel and dice.
  • 2In a large mixing bowl, combine mayonnaise, mustard, onion, celery, cumin, salt, pepper, eggs, pickles and juice from pickles; mix well. Spoon 1/2 of the mixture over potatoes and toss gently to coat. You don't want your potatoes swimming in the mayo mixture so add remaining a little at a time until potatoes are well coated.
  • 3NOTE: If potatoes salad seems to dry, add a little more mayonnaise.

    Refrigerate until ready to serve.
